Examination details

Grading scale: TH - (U,3,4,5) - (Fail, Three, Four, Five)
Assessment: Written examination. Project completed. Examination results define grade. The teaching of the course takes the form of lectures, exercises and a compulsory literature study. The literature study is performed in a smaller group of students. Given a scientific review article in a modern materials field, one original article per student is selected. The group then gives an oral presentation of the review and their individual articles.

The examiner, in consultation with Disability Support Services, may deviate from the regular form of examination in order to provide a permanently disabled student with a form of examination equivalent to that of a student without a disability.


Assumed prior knowledge: KOOA15 General Chemistry, KOKA25 Organic Chemistry and KASA10/KOO022 Inorganic Chemistry.
The number of participants is limited to: No
